Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  You need to get it checked out by a diabetologist and a neurologist. A full work up will be required.  Ask him to take a tab. Neurobion forte twice a day after food for a month.  And consult them AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
